Not too fond of Carlsberg, but I often drink Tuborg. A very 'standard' beer, but for cheaper "everyday" beers, when you just need a bit of refreshment, it's one of my favs.

I didn't know you could still get Tuborg. Haven't had it in years, it's not available in pubs or even off licences where I am. Didn't realise it was still a thing. Carlsberg isn't great, though aren't they changing the taste?


I looked for Tuborg today at my local Booze Warehouse, but no joy. (They also didn't have that delightful APA I drank copious amounts of in Rhode Island).

The Sorry and the Sadness of Regional Foodstuffs. wink

I did "manage" to procure a bottle of Harp, though! big grin That stuff they can't give away! wink

Don't know about that, but they do have various types, of course.

Tuborg is still going strong, the classic Danish 'everyman's beer', really.

Neither Carlsberg nor Tuborg is something I drink for taste or pleasure, but they do their job,

Currently had an Aass Classic and a Belgian Leffe; delving into my fridge for more specialty beers.

Which English beers would you boys recommend?

England is known for their ales and lagers, of course; haven't explored their micro brewery industry much (if there is one). But I like Brewdog's Punk IPA. Never cared much for the super-popular Fuller's London Pride, for example.

I'd recently tried a few of the Fuller's London Pride and was disappointed; not bad, but nothing I'd seek out. Same goes for Newcastle Ale. Most disappointing of all was the highly-touted "Timothy Taylor's Landlord", but then these were all in bottle form, and draft ("draught") beer is always the best.

I don’t want to come over all Andy Murray, but Brew Dog is Scottish rather than English. Might not be important to the readers of this thread, but I’m sure it is to them!

Newcastle Brown Ale HAS to be from the bottle. If you don’t like it, then you just have to accept that it isn’t for you.

Not a problem.

Currently drinking a bottle of Anchor Steam beer from the Land of the Marshmallow.

I love me some Carlsberg! It's fast becoming my "go to" beer as I near phase one of my dotage.

Is Carlsberg any "better" on draft ("draught")? I find the canned stuff to be quite acceptable.

P.S. Had some white wine last night; I prefer red, so I was reminded how sweet most white wine tastes to me.

Had a big party on Friday -- the Norwegian independence day. First downed a bottle of Rosemount white wine on my own (I need the sweeter variants of white wine), before heading over to some friends for a 'balcony' party -- ripe with specialty beers. At about midnight, three of us guys hit the town, searching for a karaoke bar. We found none that wasn't fully booked, but a few other places. Went for an afterparty at about 4, sung a bit of Youtube karaoke, the host dished up an excellent "Oldfashioned" drink from his HUMONGOUS, floor-to-roof drinks cabinet (never seen anything like it), and then I stumbled home at about 5:30.

Still hung over, two days later.

It's the Memorial Day weekend. Not a celebratory occasion, but observed nonetheless.

Bought a bottle of Bass pale ale and a can of Boddington's Pub Ale. Both are new to me. Having Indian food tonight (Vindaloo) though I'll try those English beers without the overpowering spice of the food.

Cheers.

Oh, had a Paulaner beer, which was nice. Fruity but not sweet. Would drink one again.
